deal. >> there's a little thing called a super bowl in between. >> whatever. >> hoda's going to have fun. i think hoda's been cheating, i do. along the way. a little bit. >> not on the show. we have been on other shows, i have not had a sip on other shows, although they are pushing it. i did mike huckabee's show on fox. the up with you did before. >> the saintly mike huckabee tried to do that to you? there was a glass there off camera and i said, oh, my god, what's that? we wanted you to feel at home. i reached for it. i wasn't going to drink it allegedly. he said it was called baptist wine, which is grape juice. >> mr. huckabee, he's a sweet man. are you finished with your tour, book tour? >> i'm going to go to palm beach this week and do a book signing. >> people love you down there. >> that's a fun spot for us. at jennifer miller's jewelry store. >> you have to share her. >> i will share. okay, guess where we're going.
>> we're going to los angeles. >> yes, we are. we're taking the show on the road, sunny california. >> all kinds of details how you can join us out there. starting february 11th. >> we're going to have two weeks of shows. >> two weeks of shows out there. >> it's going to rock and roll. >> today, though, is mild here. it's going to be 50 degrees. >> it's just weird. >> weird weather. >> 60-some degrees, foggy where i live, wet. >> sara's out there in the wetness and looking for a couple of people in the crowd who are going to come in and get their game on with us. >> get crazy. i want to see some of these people to see where we're going to pick from. >> oh, wow. good. building up. excellent. >> sad news this morning for ashley judd and her husband of 11 years. he's the race car driver, a lot of people know, dario francetti.
they said they were splitting, calling it quits. they put out a joint statement together saying they decided to mutually end their marriage. they always will be family and continue to cherish our relationship based on love, respect, integrity, and joy. >> these things are always well worded, and you understand why. they always ask for privacy at a time like this. i always say when i read back. can you go back to what it says exactly? >> here it is. >> that doesn't help me. >> here it is. >> that makes it worse. we'll always be family and continue to cherish our relationship based on the special love, integrity, and respect we have always enjoyed. if you have all that, then why can't you make the marriage work? i'm not saying they don't have it, i'm not questioning. the wording is always interesting to me. i think if you've got all those components in your relationship, why would there not be hope for that marriage? >> we don't know what goes on. >> that's what i'm saying.
is it just for the prepress. >> something that struck me about her relationship with her husband. i remember being envious is a strong word, but thinking, wow, they are very, very lucky. i remember how it seemed how deep it was, how open it was, and how it seemed to be steamy, very kind of public steamy relationship. she kept saying, you know, we always keep our relationship, you know, keep the home fires burning, and sometimes after 11 years, you think god, if they can do that, why aren't we doing that? >> it's hard to keep home fires burning if you're not home. it's very hard. he's on the road. that's a grueling schedule. she's an actress. almost never shoot movies and things where you live. you're almost always on location. it takes a very, very extraordinary relationship to last through that sort of stuff. >> but back to the question, do people who seem to have all that chemistry and they talk about it and you peek in, is it real and why don't i have that. we saw that with heidi klum. >> i don't know why you don't have it, i pray for you every
day. >> mock tail, i don't even want it. >> we were so surprised when they broke up. >> heidi klum and seal. they got married every year. >> renewed their vows. >> every time you saw them, they were kissing. >> beautiful babies. >> ashton kutcher and demi moore seemed to be publicly affectionate. when you saw them, you peeked in and thought if i could just have that. >> not just that that keeps two people together. it helps. i think that's a big part of our culture problem. >> what's that? >> the media tells us that it's all about sex. sex is a wonderful part of a good relationship but it's one component. you could have the world's greatest sex life and have a lousy marriage. >> but you always hope you can still have the steam after years and years and years and years. what's the truth? >> you can't. >> that's the end of that. >> you can't. you can have something that's
even better and deeper. if that's what you want is just steamy and steamy, first of all, your bodies are going to tell you differently. you age and men lose their testosterone by the time they are age 50, they've lost half of it. women go through hormonal changes. >> cranky. >> setting yourself up for -- why don't you find a different kind of contentment and have those moments when you still rekindle what you have. >> you need the rekindling moments, too. >> you're not the same person you were when you were 18 years old. >> you can still have romance and you can still have hot sex. >> yes, you can. yes, you can. not as often or as long. [ laughter ] but then you really appreciate it when you have it. >> there's a lot of -- we talked about public affection, there's also public proposals. we've been seeing tons of. if you google proposals -- 1,000 will come up. >> that's why it's not special to me.
too many people doing it and it's lost it's appeal. >> there was one in l.a., guy decided he would propose to his girlfriend, threw a pink smoke bomb up in the air. >> alert the s.w.a.t. team, great. >> she said, yes. >> he proposed got down on one knee. >> what did people behind them waiting in line to get to a doctor's appointment or work, how were they feeling? great blessings on the couple? >> they were fine. >> that's the last thing l.a. needs, more people stopping traffic. >> they did one on broadway. cinderella is on broadway, a couple got up on stage, a man proposed to her -- police officer proposed to his girlfriend up on stage. >> why that one doesn't bother me, it doesn't impact other people who are not interested in you getting -- you know? >> i do wonder about public proposals. it seems like there are certain things you want to say. people like it on the jumbotron or jay leno. >> we live in a society that really doesn't -- nothing's sacred anymore.
everybody tells everybody about everything. >> all the details. >> i'm reading a book right now, i'm not going to talk about the book. i can't believe one person wrote that about another person in their life. i think, what does that tell you about the person that wrote the book? everything. >> right. >> you don't know if everything you're reading is true about the person, but you find out everything about the person writing that garbage. >> by the way, on to a fun note, we have a great show today. we have liza minnelli in the house. >> yes, we do. we also have the other great stars of "cabaret" with us after 40 years. and michael bolton. >> he is singing for us. and we have en-joy. our two teams are checking in. we've got to pick our people. >> we'll pick them on commercial. we don't have time. but we're going to have a lot of fun. so stick around and get this party started right after this. they said we didn't have time.

we didn't have homelessness, the term, we weren't using that back then. it was just, the reality of it, was right there. so, that's something you never forget, you never get it out of your system. >> speaking of your children, there's one really interesting portion of the book, you were sued for plagiarism. >> copyright infringement. >> i felt your pain, wait a minute, i never heard this song before. we had a tape of us writing it together, and you were still found to be guilty. that goes to the soul of a person, pardon the pun. you stole somebody else's child and called it your own. >> what happens is your child gets taken from you. >> yeah, yeah. i felt for you. >> that was up there with one of the worst things that could ever happen to anybody. >> the book is really interesting. >> very uplifting, a lot of life lessons. >> beautifully written. >> even though you don't trash anybody, i think it's going to sell a whole lot of books. hopefully, you won't kick hoda off the new york times
